COVID-19 GUIDELINE OVER THE HOLIDAY SEASONFriday 18th December 2020
Notes from Cabinet: (pt5) - The Cabinet reiterated its policy, embedded in law, to bring an end to all commercial activity on Christmas eve at 8:00 pm. Only essential services may continue past that hour. Gasoline stations and pharmacies are the essential services that may go beyond 8:00 pm.
Churches are allowed to continue their worship services past midnight on these two nights but must end in-time to allow worshipers to return home by 1:00 am, on both Christmas Eve and Old Year’s Night/New Year’s Day. Private parties are limited to 10 persons only and are to end before 100:am.
Beaches are open on the holidays for limited hours from 5:00 am to 1:00 pm on the three holidays that are on the calendar; Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day. Some consideration is being given to expanding the hours to maybe 3:00 pm.
Boxing Day, the Cabinet decided, will be celebrated on Monday, December 28, to be confirmed by a Governor General proclamation.
Each of the above will be permitted within the guidelines of the COVID-19 Regulations.
